First TT finished today.

Postby iaintas » Sun Mar 07, 2010 2:33 pm

Well had my first TT in the form of the "mt wellington challenge", managed to get a time of 1h10min48seconds, pretty stoked with that. On the upside i wasn't overtaken after starting 16th, but did a fair bit of overtaking (think about 10 or so people), and was pretty satisfying overtaking people on $8-9k bike with ZIpp 404s etc when i was on my old standard avanit giro with $200 wheels. Im definately looking forward to doing some more racing in the future :)

Just goes to show, that if you don't have the get up and go in your legs, then those mega dollar bikes do you diddly squat. :)
Just keep working on your fitness and then, worry about a good bike. :idea:
I don't suffer fools easily and so long as you have done your best,you should have no regrets.

I hope you enjoyed it. Its terrible when you get to the end and think "if I'd gone a bit harder there" or "I feel pretty good actually, too damn good."

What was the distance?

21km with approx 1100m climbing, i felt pretty buggered at the top, and hit a wall about 3km out when i really should have been able to push. i feel like a tapered pretty well leading up and had an average HR of 175bpm (i was a bit worried when i kept looking at my HR and seeing 180+).

Great effort - interested to know how the climb profile was too - "Mt Wellington Challenge" sounds sounds a little vertical.

Oh - and BTW - there is nothing wrong with the old standard Avanti Giro :wink:
